    I highly recommend Alexis. He is now my first call for any work on the West Coast. He was prompt, enthusiastic, smart and his shooting is really beautiful. He also managed to sweet- talk his way into getting much better access to film at our location on the day of the shoot. He shot during difficult circumstances (COVID) and used social distancing and masks to ensure the shoot was conducted in a safe manner. Alexis went above and beyond for this shoot, he really cared about getting the best possible footage and getting that delivered to me in a timely fashion. The Talent also wrote me an email afterwards to say how much they enjoyed working with him.

    Alexis was an absolute joy to work with. His communication is crystal clear, he comes to every shoot with ideas, passion, energy, and excellent BTS questions. I spent 5 days with him in the field and would highly recommend him to work with. He took a "run and gun" documentary shoot and brought the enthusiasm and production quality of a commercial shoot. He strove to make every shot perfect but this love of the craft was equally matched by flexibility and humility. Choose Alexis!

    Alexis is an exceptional videographer and field producer to work with on any project! He is highly adaptable in the field, skillful behind the camera, and incredibly proactive and well-prepared. He takes direction exceptionally well yet is quick to offer suggestions and solutions when problems arise. The quality of his work and turnaround time of delivery exceeded our expectations.
